Charles University in Prague - CMSS Only

The historic capital of Bohemia, Prague has been a political, cultural, and economic hub in Europe since before Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the world, was built in the 9th century. It continues to be a centre for music, culture, food, film, and tourism to this day.

Founded by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV in 1348, Charles University is the oldest and largest university in Prague (53,000+ students) - the first university in central Europe and one of the few medieval universities around the world. 

International travel presents challenges that may not be found when attending classes on campus. There may be a lack of resources, emergency services, hospitals, accessibility issues and/or demands on the physical and the mental self, all of which can challenge individuals when away from their usual support systems and structures. Adequate preparation is essential.

For this reason, it is imperative that you evaluate all aspects of your own physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual condition against the rigors of the particular study abroad program you are selecting. If you are unsure of whether or not this program is a good fit for you and/or if you have any circumstances that could impede your enjoyment of the program, please contact us. Our Study Abroad Team will be happy to assist in finding the best options for you and arrange any supports or accommodations necessary to ensure your success.

Please note if you have or are seeking a certificate from Student Accessibility Services, you should provide this early to your Study Abroad Advisor to ensure that the option that you are seeking can support your needs.
